For Authors

Thank you for visiting! We're happy to welcome authors who are interested in becoming a part of the The Captivating Quill.

Member-Quills may share excerpts, guest posts, or participate in a Q&A. They may also participate in any new features we may introduce. Honorary Members also receive an author page on this website. Click on the button below to learn more.

Note that we feature a variety of genres, but 98% of them are a romance sub-genre or have romantic elements, and this is the audience to which our site caters. Books without ANY romantic element are featured on a case-by-case basis.  All self-published books must be professionally-edited—no exceptions—and the book cover should appeal to the general market in your genre. Please note that we do turn away books if we feel they do not fit with what our audience expects.

Please note that we do not review books.

Before sending your inquiry, please make sure that your book(s) falls within one of our allowed content ratings.
